UAE and Izmir get connected with Air Arabia

Posted 21 January 2018 · Add Comment

The UAE and Turkey's third city - Izmir - will be connected later with direct flights to Sharjah with Air Arabia.



Izmir, which is the third largest city in Turkey, joins Istanbul, Antalya, Bodrum and Trabzon as the carrier's fifth destination in the country when it starts on 27 June.
The flight will operate twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays, departing Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) at 21:05 hours, and arriving the next day at Izmir's Adnan Menderes International Airport (ADB) at 00:50 hours local time. The return flight will depart Izmir at 01:30 hours, landing in Sharjah at 06:50 hours local time.
Adel Al Ali, Air Arabia's group chief executive officer said "Turkey is a country with a true epitome of a cultural crossroad, and holds history that is as tangible and accessible as any of its modern-day attractions. We are immensely pleased to announce Izmir as our fifth destination in Turkey. Air Arabia's goal will always be to allow passengers the ability to explore new destinations through affordable travel options. This new flight to Izmir is an exciting destination for residents in the UAE and GCC to visit just in time for the summer holidays."
Home to historic sites such as Ephesus and Pergamon, Izmir sits as a focal point of rich Turkish culture, history and heritage on the Central Aegean coast of Turkey. Its swarmed bazaars, endless dining options and an enchanting waterfront promenade cover sufficient grounds to earn it an accolade as Turkey's city of life.
